Extra-Curricular Opportunities 

Extra-curricular dance provision and regular theatre visits are fundamental to our success. We offer opportunities for students from all year groups to participate in activities outside of the curriculum through dance clubs and external providers. Students from KS3 and KS4 perform in the annual AGS Dance show.


Practical assessments are undertaken at the end of each unit of work, with extended projects set for each year group.
